The OMNIKEY® 5025CL is a PC-linked reader that reads / writes to 125 kHz contactless tags and smart cards. Designed for ease-of-use, the reader works with existing low frequency physical access cards such as HID Prox®, enabling implementation of logical access applications without the need for re-badging.

The OMNIKEY 5025 reader is based on the proven driver and hardware technology to ensure greater stability, durability and compliance. It provides full CCID support and can be used without installation of a driver supporting WINDOWS®, LINUX® and MAC® operating systems. The reader is backward compatible and can be used as a replacement of the existing 5325 CL family*.

Modern and stylish color options allow for seamless integration into different environments like healthcare and corporate including offices, production floor and representative area. Smart accessories such as adhesive plate, screw mount and card holder extend the usability and convenience of the compact and powerful reader beyond standard desktop operation. They also enable tap-and-go use as well as permanent “card present” mode in all contactless card environments.
